RKS Travel: So Your European Flight Delay/Cancellation/Rescheduling Has Caused You Aggravation: Your Rights as a Passenger

Thanks to less than astute airline and airport management coupled with the Canadian federal government’s COVID obsession Toronto Pearson’s Airport is now the worst in the world for delays and baggage loss.

However I have several recountings of numerous European delays, flight cancellations and a stern warning from a diplomatic contact to avoid checking in your baggage in Europe at all costs. A neighbour flying to Greece next month has had two flights rescheduled already within Greece.

So the two Greek airlines Olympic and Aegean notified my neighbour of the delay and rescheduling but when I look at the e-mails my neighbour sent me from the two airlines there was no mention of what right he had to compensation. Convenient.

So see the attached for your rights for claims against airlines in the EU https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/passenger-rights/air/index_en.htm
